The two incidents weren't the same aside from contact between two players! None of the same laws were involved and the Stander one was essentially off the ball

I have to completely disagree
Firstly the challenge is very late, Stander is never getting to the ball as Lambie has made contact with the ball as Stander jumps.
Even if you don't think it was late, Stander could have lessed the impact if he wanted to. By leading with his hip he has turned a late collision into one were he has caused serious head trauma.
How is Standers challenge any different from Schumacher's on Battiston (where Battiston fell into a coma as well as breaking vertebrae, ribs and losing teeth)?

Definitely a red card. A further question though; Is this worse than a tip tackle or taking a man out in the air. Offenses which appear to be more heavily sanctioned at the moment

My argument is with the law, not with it's application, therefore it is valid to say that high profile games are being impacted. If forward passes where a yellow card offence, then it would be acceptable criticism to say that games were being disproportionately impacted. Furthermore, high profile games provide the coverage to debate what is right for the game.
Frank Lampard's disallowed goal in the 2010 World Cup in front of Blatter and countless millions began the process of introducing goal-technology in professional football. Similar incidents had taken place countless times before when the technology has been available, but not in such a high profile game.

I think World Rugby have got themselves in a pickle at the moment by heavily penalising things that look dangerous rather than those which cause injury. I feel they need to back up their focus on such offences with some evidence because many high profile games are being impacted these decisions

I bet this is that cheat McCaw's idea!

They're scared of making a big decision and getting it wrong. They'd rather let the citing deal with it, like with Francis the other week or Burger in 2007

The first one is American football style and why they get so many concussions!
And Cockers has been on a PR campaign for the whole 6 nations to stop Manu getting called up. He even had de Villiers saying the same thing in the BBC's rugby program

I'm sure if Ashton was giving money to the poor many would find a way to criticise him!
It seems like incidental contact, but it is reckless and he may get banned. Not anything like Raisuque though, as Ashton was actually trying to play the game rather than fighting

At 2.55 you can see Nonu spotting the defender has turned in and then it's a simple in-line from Mitchell. Great work from two great players
